drank Egyptian Chamomile by Steeped Tea
2954 tasting notes

This is a decent chamomile, but I honestly prefer the mellow stale grocery store tea bags to this. I don’t enjoy the fresh and almost fierce flavour of looseleaf chamomile. Still, I really enjoy trying new brands of things and will drink this until its gone.

The good news is that it does not oversteep (it has been sitting in my cup for 2 hours because I forgot about it) and also can be brewed multiple times.

Flavors: Biting, Flowers, Lemon, Pepper

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 2 tsp 15 OZ / 450 ML

I’m the same way. Bagged chamomile just tastes better to me. I keep hoping to find a loose chamomile I like, but I haven’t yet.

I can send you a sample of this if you want to try it, but I’m not sure it will be any better than the loose ones you tried.

No need to go to the trouble. Just keep me in mind if you do run across a good one.

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
